OUR TECHNOLOGY

Our latest 3D Scanning Technology

There are 4 popular types of 3D body scanning technologies in the market today.


● DSLR Photogrammetry 3D Scanners

● Handheld 3D Scanners

● Turntable-based Full Body 3D 

● Hybrid Full Body 3D Scanners


A DSLR full body 3D scanner relies on photogrammetry to create a 3D scan.

Photogrammetry works by finding shared features between multiple

photographs to calculate depth. 


The cameras have a special peripheral attachment that can synchronize the captures so all cameras fire at the same time.


Handheld 3D scanners used in 3D photography typically rely on structured light to calculate the geometry of the subject being 3D scanned.


3D scanning someone with a handheld 3D scanner works by having the person stand still as you slowly move the 3D scanner around them to capture the different parts of their body.


Turntable-based 3D body scanners rely on the same technology as handheld

3D scanners (structured light) created to eliminate the need for a human being to walk around and scan people with a handheld 3D scanner. The subject steps onto a platform and holds still while the platform rotates and a mounted 3D sensor moves up and down until the entire person completes

their 3D body scan.

HOLOD3CK's HYBRID FULL BODY 3D SCANNER

At Holod3ck we  found that the best scanners  is one that combines the best of all three technologies.  Holod3ck's 3D Capture Technology is a hybrid portable scanning system that uses both photogrammetry and structured light methods to create a full highly textured 3D scan.


Using portable integration of cameras and lights mounted in an array around the subject being scanned, the system can digitally capture high quality 360 degree scans.


In addition to cameras and lights, there are also projectors that project a pattern on the person being scanned, which helps the photogrammetry software to reconstruct high quality geometries everywhere including flat colored materials.

NEW UPDATE: Our latest 3D Printing Technology

 After many months of testing we're finally ready to start offering a brand new full-color 3D printing option to customers using the very latest technology in the industry using Full-color resin 3D prints made on the Mimaki 3DUJ-553 , the world’s first Photorealistic full-color 3D inkjet printer. 


The Mimaki works by firing resin out of ink jet print heads and then curing it with a special UV light. The basic process is:


  1. Resin is fired out of inkjet print heads and cured by a UV LED light
  2. Once it completes a layer, a roller flattens out the layer and the UV LED light is fired again
  3. After a layer is complete, the build platform moves down and the process repeats

 

Benefits of Resin 3D Products over previous technology .

  • Significantly improved durability vs. Sandstone 3D products
  • Significantly improved color accuracy vs. Sandstone 3D products
  • Improved color detail vs. Sandstone 3D Products (at comparable size)
  • Water-resistant without a coating
  • Reduced reprint rate (more reliable manufacturing timeline)


More freedom in how to pose- With parts being stronger, 3D prints are much less likely to break during the 3D printing process allowing your customers to be much more expressive in how they pose. While there are still some constraints, stuff like arms/fingers spread apart, brims of hats and other intricate details are much less of an issue to 3D print with full-color resin.


Longer lasting products- In addition to being stronter, full-color resin 3D prints are more water resistant than the full-color sandstone product. This means they'll likely be more resistant to humidity. Also, being stronger not only means more freedom in how to pose, but also means the print is less likely to be damaged if a customer accidentally drops it.


Smaller sizes- Full-color resin 3D printing also means being able to 3D print at much smaller sizes while still retaining detail. This makes offering 1-inch and 2-inch 3D printed figurines a possibility: opening up brand new use cases for the product. For example, if the customers you sell to are in the miniature community it now makes it possible for them to put themselves in their own dioramas. 



Additional Notes:

The surface of the print has a shiny finish 

“Build lines” will still be visible, but not as pronounced as on sandstone (smaller layer height in 3D printing process, so thinner layers in final product).


Larger prints will show more detail, just like with sandstone.


Prints are solid and do not have hollowed insides/feet
